SAGINAW, Mich. (WNEM) - After stubborn clouds for the first half of the workweek, high pressure is working into the region which will allow sunshine to return for the rest of the week. More sun is also expected this weekend. Needless to say, Friday Night Lights will be in great shape and any plans you have outdoors this weekend are also going to be nice! For our area farmers doing any harvesting, conditions will be much drier/cooperative to close out the week.

Today

There is a deck of stratus clouds this morning from around the Tri-Cities and south. No rainfall is associated with this. These clouds are present due to an inversion, where warmer air is above cooler air. It is clear up north though, where temperatures are already diving below freezing. Grab the jacket as you head out! High pressure is moving in which is working to clear out the stratus clouds. After clearing, skies will be mostly sunny the rest of the day with a light & variable wind. Highs will be up right around the 60 degree mark.

Thursday should see highs right back around the 60 degree mark.

We expect more partly to mostly sunny skies this weekend. Even if you do see a few occasional clouds, know that it will still be bright overall! Any clouds observed this weekend, especially high clouds, are actually remnants from “Ian” as it wraps out over the eastern United States.
